We’ve all been there. It’s a school night. You’ve finished your errands just in time to meet the kiddos off the bus. The husband is running late. You still have a ton of stuff to finish up around the house. That’s when it’s time to “balance my plate” open the fridge and grab a Stouffer’s Family Size Lasagna with Meat & Sauce for dinner. It takes enough time for me to get everything I need to be done, the kids started on their homework, and the husband should be walking in the door just as the oven timer goes off. As the kids say “Just In Time, Mom!”
Why do I choose Stouffer’s?
Stouffer’s meals are made with premium ingredients and are a great base to build a balanced meal around. Whether it’s a nice salad, some yummy Hawaiian Rolls, or even a fun potato casserole, Lasagna with Meat & Sauce goes with everything. It does help that the entire family feels the same. I can make a Family size and even my picky eater is happy and we usually have a bit left over for lunch the next day! A Win/Win situation for Mom too.
Stouffer’s has recently announced its new “Kitchen Cupboard” commitment. This new initiative focuses on shortening and simplifying recipes that only include ingredients that consumers can recognize and can find at home, like vine-ripened tomatoes, freshly made pasta, and real mozzarella. This effort begins with Stouffer’s Lasagna with Meat and Sauce, one of the brand’s classic offerings. The simpler recipe now contains fewer ingredients, but continues to offer the same great taste consumers know and love. Over the next few years, consumers will see Kitchen Cupboard renovations across existing and new products. The guidelines include:
- Using ingredients that consumers trust and recognize, like what they would use in their own home kitchens, with no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives
- Working on simplified recipes that result in great taste with fewer ingredients
- Offering recipes that provide consumers with the same, or better, dining experience at a good value

The holidays are often filled with sweets and treats, but it’s still important to balance your plate at mealtime and make sure your family is getting the nutrition they need. As part of a Nestlé educational campaign called Balance Your Plate, Stouffer’s is helping families create delicious and nutritious meals that incorporate both frozen and fresh foods. We know that everyone wants to eat better, but need inspiration and simple solutions to choose from so they can make it a reality more often. Balance Your Plate is focused on simple solutions – offering a range of recipes and tips that allow you chose the “perfect pairing” at meal time
